My ear is sore, when i drink something it feels like the whole ear tube is on fire, not constantly sore but stabbing pains every now and then - occasional nausea and dizziness too?

Infection: Acute pharyngitis may result in referred pain and/or an associated ear infection. I would suggest that you see your PCP or urgent care for an examination. Monitor your temperature, drink fluids and rest. A strep culture may be ordered at the time of the visit.
